|Apr-20-16|| ||Delboy: That is some game! The chess lovers of the world deserve the pleasure to play through this one.|
|Apr-20-16|| ||john barleycorn: dashing game.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||offramp: Fantastic. I can't recall seeing two knights parked for so long in the enemy position from so early on. Apart from the knights, Black's other pieces attack from their original positions.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||al wazir: 13. Bh3 would have been interesting. If 13...Ndf3+ (13...Nef3+ is much the same), then 14. Kf1 Nxg1 (14...Bxh3 15. Nxh3) 15. Bxc8 Ne2 16. Qe3 Qxc8 17. h4. Black is only a ♙ up.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||FSR: Beautiful game!|
|Apr-19-17|| ||FSR: Dubeck has only one other game in the database, which like this one is a sparkling game against a strong opponent. L Dubeck vs R Weinstein, 1958|
|Apr-19-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Leroy's bad to D. Bone|
|Apr-19-17|| ||AlicesKnight: "Send the cavalry round the back to drive the enemy onto our infantry..." - fine performance.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||Once: Beautiful game, although I think I'd call it a closed sicilian rather than a KIA. I suppose there's a large overlap between the two.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: White didn't play the opening very well but he sure found the best defensive moves once he was in a hopeless position.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||offramp: |

I like the move 19...exf6. Dubeck had already left the bishop on f6, and in these positions it's easy to lose one's head. But he realised that the bishop had to go.
|Apr-19-17|| ||offramp: This game reminded me of Huebner vs Kasparov, 1986 and Huebner vs Kasparov, 1986 sellotaped togather.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||goodevans: What's black's follow up after 10.dxc4?|
|Apr-19-17|| ||whiteshark: In the end all remaining white pieces are strung on the 1st rank, except ♔h4.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <blunderclap: I might have merrily essayed either h4 or perhaps Ne2>|
And so did Bone, with Al Acrity in Ood-al-Zafun in 1972 and with Joy O'Joyce at Getcher-Oxov in 1973, respectively.
|Apr-19-17|| ||Pasker: I just can't believe this game. This is insane. Its more like Stockfish 8 beating a class B player. What a game?|
|Apr-19-17|| ||Pballa: I'm nitpicking here, but black missed a cleaner finish. 19. ..hxg5++ 20. Kxg5 Qa5+ 21. Kf4 e5+ 22. Bxe5 (22. Ke3 Ng4#) dxe5+ 23. Kg5 Qd8#.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||binesh.b: Nicely Done! :)|
|Apr-19-17|| ||morfishine: If "Bone saw" it, this wouldn't have happened
|Apr-19-17|| ||morfishine: <6.Be3> was a ham-fisted, Bone-headed move|
On the surface it looks good to develop, but from a positional perspsective, better moves beckon
|Apr-19-17|| ||Albion 1959: Oh, them bones, them bones, them dry bones! The Duebeck Immortal? It looked like one of those Morphy v Amateur from the 1850's games. What a mess white got into as early as move 9! Qc1? was a poor misguided attempt to exchange the dark squared bishops. Surely Nf3 is better? Move 10, Nf3 again (develop then castle) better than c3. Move 14 last chance Kd2 ,the king may yet be able to escape. But after Kf2?? it's a forced mate!|
|Aug-07-17|| ||Saniyat24: After White's sixth move it looks like KIA...|
|Dec-10-17|| ||GrahamClayton: The way that the Black knights end up on the first and second ranks after so few moves reminds me of W A Foldeak vs F Nagy, 1942|
|Dec-12-17|| ||Domdaniel: An amazing, perplexing, brilliant game, though maybe one to be watched in awe rather than analysed too closely.|
Both of Dubeck's games in the database have this quality. Did he never play an ordinary game? Or did he ensure that the score was 'lost' unless he played a brilliancy?
|Dec-12-17|| ||perfidious: <Dom....Did (Dubeck) never play an ordinary game? Or did he ensure that the score was 'lost' unless he played a brilliancy?>|
We met in a side event at Philadelphia held during the 1993 US Open; he played the Advance against my French and won, though I do not remember any scintillating tactics in the game.
